F.A.Q. CAVING

What is caving?
Caving is as excursion to explore the underworld. We will enter a mostly horizontal cave. It is technically not demanding, but  there will be some crawls, squeezes and narrow passages and on some tours some little lakes to pass. We will admire cave formations like stalactites, scallops…

Who can participate?
Everyone with a little fitness can participate. The age limit is 12 years and 130cm ( for smaller children please ask at our office) Due to some quite narrow passages this tour is not recommended for claustrophobics and heavy participants (limit 100 kg/220 lbs). If you are afraid of heights, pleas just tell your guide and he will help you over the difficult passages. Everything else will be thought to you by the guide and you will find it easy and enjoyable.
